Windows 7: use 27" (2560 x 1440) on board with 1920x1200)

use 27" (2560 x 1440) on board with 1920x1200)

I have the ASROCK H77M and want to buy a 27" monitor with 2560x1440 resolution.

the specs show on DVI/HDMI it only can support 1920x1200. My only high-resolution option seems to be the analog (D-sub) port where the board lists 2048x1536 as the max. resolution.

currently i have 2 monitors on it (24" 1920 x 1080 on DVI and 19"on on sub-D) on DVI. that 19"monitor would go away and i plan to use the 24"and the 27". now the way i see it i would have to hook up the 27"monitor via D-sub:
- will the picture quality be bad?

Ideally I don't buy a graphics card.... unless that is my only option to get good picture quality at high res. i don't do any graphics application that would require more then the Intel on-chip graphics.

i haven't researched much if some boards with on-board graphics (on Intel CPU) would allow monitors with higher resolution vie HDMI.

It should be fine using VGA I myself don't really see much or any difference from my VGA and dvi monitors.

Id agree the quality of the monitor is much more important than the connection type

I would put the 24" on the vga port if possible.

Use DVI for the 27"

Doesn't look like your board supports 2560-1440 px. If you really need that resolution, you'll need a gfx card. While that res may be good for Photoshop etc, 1080p movies will not have any more definition compared to a normal HD res of 1920-1080 px. Also you may find that for general use, text is too small. Resetting the text size is an option, but kinda defeats the object. I'd say just get a regular 27" 1920-1080 px HD monitor.

If i read this correctly, it supports 1920x1200" ont eh te digital outputs and 2048x1536 on analog. Darn... so for a 27" monitor i need either a new board or a grafix card.
I did soem more reasearch on Intel chipsets. it seems the old 1155 chips don't allow such high resolution. for the 1150 socket the Z97 allows high resolution. but my PC is adequate, so no upgrade.

"- Supports HDMI Technology with max. resolution up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz
- Supports DVI with max. resolution up to 1920x1200 @ 60Hz
- Supports D-Sub with max. resolution up to 2048x1536 @ 75Hz"

I like the higher resolution. I have two 27"monitors with 2560x1440 at work and really like the added real-estate. i realize the 1920x1080 27"monitors would save me a lot of hassle, but i would fell old looking at such huge symbols

FYI - 4th gen Intels support the res you are after, and will drive 3 monitors straight off the board. Last year I built a i7 4770K on a MSI E85M-E45 mobo and it does

HDMI 2560-1600
VGA 1920-1200
DVI-D 1920-1200

and it's not just the i7's - I also built a i3-4130 using the same board, which also drives 3 HD screens. Not bad for a budget pc using onboard video !

Multiple monitors are one of the best upgrades you can do IMHO.

The Intel HD 2500 does support the resolution of that 27" monitor, as long as the DVI port is Dual-Link.
